INTER-AGENCY OPERATIONAL UPDATE > Angola / 22 August 2017

Operational Context Violence and ethnic tensions, in the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), has forced some 33,000 Congolese to seek safety in Angola’s Lunda Norte Province. Some 75 per cent of the registered refugees are women and children. The conflict continues and refugees report incidents of indiscriminate violence, sexual and human rights abuses, and a shortage of basic items. However, the number of newly arrived refugees has decreased significantly since early July. As the security situation remains fluid in the Kasai region, humanitarian organizations are preparing to provide protection and assistance for up to 50,000 Congolese refugees who may seek asylum in Angola by the end of 2017. The first phase of the relocation of Congolese refugees in Lunda Norte to Lóvua settlement, 94 km west of Dundo, was completed. A total of 1,495 refugees, from Mussungue reception centre, were relocated to Lóvua between 8 and 13 August. The second phase of the relocation will start as soon as the plot clearing process is completed and the necessary facilities, such as latrines and showers are ready to accommodate these refugees. The arrival centre of Lóvua settlement is completed and comprises of eight hangars for overnight shelter which together have a capacity of accommodating 432 individuals per day. The site has now eight villages completed out of the planned nine. Once finalized, Lóvua settlement will consist of nine zones, each with nine villages; each village will have
